Paulista Avenue, Sao Paulo

(4.4/5 based on 20,000+ reviews on the web)
Experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city by walking through Paulista Avenue, a 3 km (2 mi) thoroughfare notable for headquartering a large number of financial and cultural institutions. This important city avenue houses an extensive shopping area, as well as Latin America’s most comprehensive fine art museum, the Sao Paulo Museum of Art. Located in one of the highest parts of the city, the avenue is clustered with radio and TV stations, and is served by numerous subway and bus lines. Once a popular residential neighborhood, the avenue is flanked by lavishly ornate mansions, former homes of the city’s most powerful coffee barons. Bumper-to-bumper traffic is frequent in this area even outside peak hours, so avoid visiting by car or taxi. By using our Sao Paulo trip builder, you can arrange your visit to Paulista Avenue and other attractions in Sao Paulo.

  • I went to the location for the fame and be in São Paulo and not knowing the Paulista so famous it would be a sin, perhaps. Nothing more to my view.

  • Sunday the Avenue is closed to cars, which creates a very pleasant atmosphere. However the points that has songs are very full and very loud music.
